Sometimes, our struggles need us

A line that might make it into the final draft of my new novel.

“And I think you’ll realise that the struggles of your life were not simply struggles intended for you, they were moments that were in need of only what you were capable of offering to make them better than they were.”

This is from a scene where Zayd, the main character, tries to comfort someone he deeply admires, and loves, after she has been through a horribly abusive relationship.

Will his ineptitude at human connections and emotional expression fail him yet again? You’ll have to read the sequel to find out.

In the meantime, if you haven’t read the first part of this series, you can order your copy now from my website at or via Amazon or Kindle.

Taqdeer: A dance with destiny, follows on from An Incomplete Love Story, revealing the struggles of life in a dystopian culture, distorted by classism and the caste system.
